Have you ever heard of a nasty little division of the Treasury Department known as “The Section”? I didn’t think so. Lucky for all of us, it ceased to exist in 1943. Or did it….
Just kidding (it did shut down in 1943 when its leader and creator, Edward Bruce, died). “The Section” was a sort of nickname for The Section of Fine Art. This, not the WPA, was the government group that led the Post Office Murals project in the 1930s and 1940s. Ah, government-funded art. More trappings of a dirty little utopia.
